The can be the quickest and most cost-effective method to pass your driving test. The intensive driving course lessons are longer than your standard hourly lessons, from 2hrs – 6hrs long.

automatic driving lessons Moorside another student passedautomatic driving lessons Moorside first time passedIt is not necessarily easier to learn how to drive an automatic car, it all depends on what you are dealing with. It won’t make much of a difference to you if you have a common issue like observation. It is possible to learn to drive an automatic car if gear changes or clutch control are difficult for you. When you learn to drive in an urban environment with lots of traffic, there is less to worry about. You will need to constantly change your gear because of the stop-start nature involved in driving in densely populated areas. This can be an issue for experienced drivers as well as those who are learning to drive a manual vehicle. An automatic car makes it easier when doing your driving test as you do not have the risk of stalling the car and any struggles you have with clutch control. A learner will have a lot less difficulty with driving manoeuvres, such as turning in the road or starting from a hill due to no gears or clutch control required. You might have difficulty managing the gears of a manual car. If this is the case, it might be easier to learn to drive in an automatic car.

Are There Any Downsides To Driving An Automatic Car?

As stated above, automatic cars tend be more expensive than manual cars to purchase, run and maintain. Because of this, automatic driving lessons tend to be more expensive than manual lessons. One downside to learning how to drive in an automatic car is that it does not allow you to drive a manual car. However, if you pass your test in a manual car, you will be able to drive both. It is possible that your future choices in buying or renting a vehicle or van may be limited by taking your driving test in an automatic car. You will have to take your driving test again if you decide to drive a manual car. Automatic cars have a lower pass rate than manual cars. Don’t let it discourage you! Every year, thousands of learners pass driving tests in automatic car.
